I know from previous conversations that Anto has that size too (I think!)

I like the way that size is only £55 (rather than £80 for the deeper shelves) Okay

Think I will buy just the basic units for now and get the doors at a later date (haven't enough spare money to buy everything at once) Crying or Very sad

All the extra goodies in this tutorial can come after that Cool

personally i think 28cm is ideal, I have another unit, Ikea but not Billy, (same concept) and it doesnt look as good...  Wink

Awesome!
I would like to do this to my billy, but i'm afraid about the resistance of the shelves...
Do you see any problems?

Any problems at the moment, this kind of milling does not weaken the shelves imho.
I'm using some kind of glue and aluminum profiles along the boards.

So you think the Aluminum reinforced the shelves?

OK, so I've added the doors thanks to the IKEA sale (at half the usual price!)





Next, the LEDs....

I was struggling to find the Aluminium profile for anywhere near the price mentioned in the original post, eventually there was some listed on eBay which is actually from Poland, but for 15metres it was £97 including postage, still quite expensive.

I did a little digging yesterday and found a UK company who had a similar version for £75 delivered, but they were out of stock and I eventually found they had discontinued the line. However, the guy I spoke to had mentioned the name of their supplier, so I tracked them down and they do have stock remaining and the total including next day delivery is just £63 (which works out at a respectable £4.20/metre)

I think I'm going to order, but any last advice against this particular product?
